A clip of a South African motorist getting robbed in broad daylight and in front of a number of witnesses while driving on a Johannesburg CBD has been shared online by Twitter user, @YusufAbramjee.
In the harrowing clip, the motorist stops at a red light behind a number of cars when a gang of gun-wielding men run-up to the car and demand the motorist's belongings. As everyone around them goes about their business, the gang proceeds to search the car before taking off very casually.
"Daylight robbery: Motorist robbed: Corner President and Nugget Streets JHB CBD." Abramjee captioned the clip.
Meanwhile, South Africans have the following thoughts about the harrowing incident:
"As long we don't know who stays in the city of JHB no one will be safe. Until our government starts to take things seriously foreign nationals will bring the city to its knees. No one will go there anymore."
"Why were all these cameras installed throughout the city if there’s not going to be any monitoring AND immediate follow-up? Otherwise, it’s a waste of taxpayer money."
"This person must be new in Jozi or could be a new driver! Phela in Jozi you must always be vigilant as if you are driving a VW! Always be on alert mode!"
In similar Briefly.co.za reports, a clip of a robber getting a lot more than he bargained for after attempting to rob a man who was walking nearby. While it is unclear how old the video is, Twitter user @DanielMarven explained that the incident happened in Hillbrow.
In the short clip, the robber can be seen trying to grab hold of the pedestrian who walks past him and a bunch of other men. When the pedestrian pulls away, the robber starts to follow him but soon stops as he realises that his victim is pulling out a gun.
The man then retreats and appears to be apologising to his would-be victim who is now pointing the gun directly at the thug. Surprisingly, the men around them all continue with what they were doing, almost oblivious to what was unfolding before them.
